    MORNING, MAN UTD FANS

    The Red Devils are currently in Surrey as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer puts his team through their paces in the scorching British sunshine.

    Solskjaer, 49, is loving being away from Carrington for a few days, telling the club’s website: “It’s fantastic to be here.

    “The facilities are great and we’re together, that’s the main thing for that bonding.

    “We all eat together and spend time with each other and it’s a chance to really do some good work and really put down a foundation for the rest of the season for these boys, and men some of them!”

    On the transfer front, Paul Pogba continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with PSG reportedly keen.

    Reports in France claim Pogba is close to an agreement with PSG but the Ligue 1 giants have yet to contact United.

    The star midfielder has entered the last year of his United contract and is not stressed about his next move.

    The France international is expected to link up with the Red Devils for pre-season by the end of the month

    His compatriot Raphael Varane is set to join the Red Devils as a deal edges closer, while Eduardo Camavinga also continues to be linked.

    United are also working on a deal to sign England full-back Kieran Trippier.

    TOFFEES JOIN LINGARD HUNT

    Everton have joined the list of clubs keeping tabs on Jesse Lingard’s situation at Manchester United.

    The England ace is back at Old Trafford after a successful loan spell at West Ham last season.

    The Hammers would be interested in taking him back but David Moyes could face competition from his old club.

    New Toffees boss Rafa Benitez has made it his top priority to strengthen the wide areas to provide more ammunition for Dominic Calvert Lewin.

    He has already completed a deal for Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray of Bayer Leverkusen is also on the radar.

    Benitez is also keen on Burnley’s Dwight McNeil but it is understood no formal offer has gone in to the Clarets yet.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said at the weekend that Lingard is part of his plans for the new season at United.

    Townsend has signed a two-year deal at Goodison Park having been released by Crystal Palace at the end of last season.

    PSG BLOW FOR UTD OVER POGBA

    PSG are set to give Manchester United a big dilemma over Paul Pogba’s future.

    The 2018 World Cup winner’s agent Mino Raiola has already discussed personal terms with the French giants.

    And if they follow it with a sizeable bid, it would severely test the resolve of the Red Devils to keep their 26-year-old star.

    Pogba has 12 months remaining on his £290,000-a-week deal at Old Trafford and has yet to indicate he wants to sign a new one.

    So United must accept they will lose him for nothing next summer, or accept a cut-price bid for the midfielder before the transfer deadline in six weeks.

    United have been here before as Pogba walked away as a free agent in 2012, much to the fury of former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

    They got just £800,000 in compensation from Juventus and will be keen not to get stung again.

    PSG believe they could land Pogba for less than half of the £89million United paid Juve to get him back in 2016.

    YES SURR

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaeris delighted with his team's Surrey setting as they step up their pre-season preparations.

    He told the club's official website: "It’s fantastic to be here.

    "The facilities are great and we’re together, that’s the main thing for that bonding.

    "We all eat together and spend time with each other and it’s a chance to really do some good work and really put down a foundation for the rest of the season for these boys, and men some of them!

    "It’s a decision we made. Of course, we drive up the road and have great facilities at Carrington, but it is special to have that pre-season tour feeling.

    "The intensity of training will be good.

    "It’s always great when you get through a hard week of training and then maybe the weather cools down a little bit and you feel so much stronger as a player and you feel you can run more.

    "It’s an important week for us."

    UNITED ON MARC

    Manchester United are reportedly aiming to hire Marc Skinner as the gaffer of their Women’s Super League side.

    Telegraph Sport claims the Red Devils are in talks with the Orlando Pride head coach who is thought to be a top target to replace Casey Stoney.

    The ex-United Women’s manager left the club at the end of last term after three seasons in charge and having steered the side to fourth in the WSL

    Stoney, who led United to WSL promotion for the first time in their history in 2019, has since become head coach of US women's side San Diego.

    Skinner, 38, is under contract with the Pride who are fifth in a National Women’s Soccer League made up of ten teams.

    And the former Birmingham boss has been in his current role since swapping Blues for a move to US women’s football in January 2019.

    The Telegraph claims a deal between Skinner and the Red Devils is far off with discussions between the two parties thought to be ongoing.

    However, it is reported United players, dismayed by Stoney’s departure, are keen on the possibility of having the coach in charge at Leigh Park Village.

    RETIREMENT GOALS

    Manchester United legend Paul Scholes showed you never lose it in football training clips posted of him online.

    The United icon, 46, was filmed in passing and shooting drills and Dimitar Berbatov joined fans in saying 'class is permanent'.

    Scholes was taking part in the workouts to promote his son Arron's personal training business.

    The first clip shows him weaving in and out of cones at the same time as playing a game of one touch.

    And the second involved his lookalike son drilling passes at him to test his touch in a similarly taxing exercise.

    Arron had clearly tailored the workout to include physical exertion and ball work to keep it entertaining.

    And the third clip looked just that as Scholes danced in and out of a tyre before knocking the ball back to his son on the volley.

    PAUL PREDICTS

    Paul Merson has named the four teams he believe can win the Premier League this season.

    He told Sportskeeda: “Man City, United, Liverpool and Chelsea can all win the title – that’s a four-way battle for the Premier League crown and I don’t expect any of them to run away with it by a margin of double-digit points.

    “In my opinion, Chelsea need a forward. I don’t know what the deal is with Erling Haaland, but they need someone who can score 20 goals a season.

    “Timo Werner is a different kind of player – he’s a willing runner who works hard for the team and is very unselfish.

    “However. he doesn’t strike me as someone who can score 20 goals, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens there.

    “Man United have already signed Jadon Sancho, but they could do with another midfielder.

    “We could witness one of the closest title races in ages, but I expect Man City to come out on top.”

    AL ABOARD

    Former Manchester United starlet Aliou Traore is set to sign FC Basel, according to reports.

    The French midfielder arrived at Old Trafford in 2017, and spent last season on loan at SM Caen in Ligue 2.

    Following his release, however, he will try and get his senior career going in Switzerland.

    THROWING A JAB

    Football fans may have to show proof they have had two doses of Covid jabs to attend games from September.

    Despite the Euro 2020 final and semi-finals attended by 60,000 supporters at Wembley, stadiums could be limited to a capacity of 16,000.

    That is if transmission rates remain dangerously high with around one in six areas in England reporting record levels of coronavirus infections.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday that only those that have been fully vaccinated at events where 'large crowds gather' will be able to attend.

    He remarked: "As we said last week, we do reserve the right to mandate certification at any point if it is necessary to reduce transmission.

    "And I should serve notice now that by the end of September – when all over-18s will have had the chance to be double jabbed – we are planning to make full vaccination the condition of entry to nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gather.

    "Proof of a negative test will no longer be enough."

    According to the Daily Mail, if infection rates continue to be high, this would also impact football fans.

    Supporters would have to show Covid passports to prove they are fully vaccinated, with a negative test result to not be enough to gain entry.

    They state that both the Premier League and EFL are seeking clarification on Johnson's comments and what this means for football.

    REDS BLOW

    Liverpool look set to lose starlet Ethan Ennis to either Manchester United or Chelsea this summer.

    The Reds were reportedly keen to keep the 16-year-old prodigy who rose through the ranks at their academy.

    But the midfielder has rejected the Kop's offer of a scholarship, the Daily Mail reports.

    The Reds are now resigned to the fact they will lose the wonderkid, whose three goals for their Under-18 side in the FA Youth Cup last campaign helped them reach the final, although they lost to Aston Villa.

    Marc Bridge-Wilkinson's side don't plan to let Ennis leave on the cheap and will demand a development fee for the youngster, the Mail claim.

    And if the Reds and his new club fail to agree terms, the matter will be resolved by a tribunal who will determine Ennis' final value.

    The Reds' bitter rivals United are said to be favourites to clinch the English dynamo's signature at this stage.

    Chelsea are still in with a shout and Ennis even spent time at their Cobham training ground last week, which he shared on Instagram.

    CROCK STAR

    SunSport has learned Shaw sustained the nasty injury during England's 2-0 last-16 triumph over Germany.

    But the Manchester United star bravely fought through the pain for almost the entire knockout stage.

    United are now keen to assess the left-back's fitness as soon as possible.

    YOU KANE DO THAT

    Harry Kane would "tarnish" his reputation if he refused to join Tottenham's pre-season training.

    That is according to ex-Crystal Palace ace Darren Ambrose, who responded to a recent report suggesting that Kane's team-mates are worried that the England captain won't link up with them in a bid to force a move away.

    Ambrose told talkSPORT: "You should always return, you’re under contract.

    “A gentleman’s agreement means nothing, absolutely nothing – particularly if Daniel Levy is like we know he is, he’s notoriously hard to deal with. He’d have said everything to get Kane to sign the contract initially.

    “He’s Tottenham’s main man and idolised by the supporters. I think he’ll tarnish any reputation and anything he brings to Tottenham by doing this.

    “He’s the England captain as well. I honestly can’t see him not turning up. I don’t know him personally but he seems like such a professional guy.

    “If he refused and Daniel Levy doesn’t get the offer or money that he wants, he could just say: ‘Don’t come back in then’".

    Kane has informed Tottenham of his intention to leave in the summer and has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United
